ICDCS 2006 Student Travel Grants

IEEE Computer Society TCDP Travel Support Grants

ICDCS is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Distributed Processing (TCDP). The committee would like to encourage graduate student participation at ICDCS and at its affiliated workshops by partially or fully funding the travel costs of individuals who would otherwise be unable to attend the conference.

Eligibility Requirements

Any graduate student who is a co-author on a regular ICDCS paper, regardless of nationality, may apply. Graduate students with only workshop papers are not eligible for this grant. TCDP will reimburse travel, accommodation, and registration costs up to $800, based on need. TCDP anticipates awarding ten (10) to sixteen (16) grants this year. The selection process will give preference to graduate students without sufficient travel funding.

Application Materials

Email applications to the TCDP Secretary & Treasurer: Scott Pike (

1. The application should include the title of the paper at ICDCS.
